Founder & Clinical Director
Diagnostics, Oral Surgery and Complex Case Management
Dr. Miguel Stanley is the clinical director of the White Clinic, a high-tech dental clinic based in Lisbon, Portugal founded 23 years ago. A passionate advocate for high quality dental care, his career has been focused on restoring smiles with his interdisciplinary team, using state-of-the-art technology, software and materials, and a strong sense of ethics and minimal invasiveness to better protect his patients. This is the reason he created the No Half Smiles® treatment philosophy and Slow Dentistry®, both aimed at improving the patient experience and the overall quality of oral healthcare.
With training in implant dentistry, cosmetic dentistry and functional occlusion, his Advanced Biological Cosmetic Dentistry approach incorporates the full scope of action of modern dentistry, bringing to light the undeniable connection between oral health and general health.
With over 200 keynote lectures given in over 50 countries, Dr. Stanley’s lectures are critically acclaimed by dentists of all ages and specialties, for the open dialogue and simple and beautiful manner in which complex cases are presented.
Nominated one of the top 100 dentists in the world by his peers in 2020 and named one of the “32 Most Influential People in Dentistry”, Dr. Miguel Stanley recently became a member of the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT) and took on the role as the first Portuguese adjunct professor at the University of Pennsylvania School of Dentistry (Penn Dental Medicine). This is “a prestigious achievement that solidifies not only an impressive and constantly expanding curriculum, but is also the confirmation of 24 years of a unique vision, a solid experience and an unwavering dedication to advanced, biological and comprehensive dentistry”.
